Publisher's Summary

James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    "it's got everything you want."

    Like space stories? This one's great. Need a little mystery solving? It's got some of that too! Do species threatening pathogens spark your interest? It's all here. Believable characters, perfectly paced storyline, and just enough description to make the scenes interesting without over doing it. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Ok story, but slow at times"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The story can be incredibly slow but the overall concept is pretty cool and once you get towards the end the pace starts to pick up


    Would you be willing to try another book from James S. A. Corey? Why or why not?

    Yeah, the overall concept was cool I'd probably try out a few more from this series

    Story
    "I actually look forward to my commute!"

    This is the only series I've ever listened to that makes my 75 minutes each way to and from work seem too short. Superb, well-researched details make humanity's future society and its accompanying technology, political structure, etc., seem not just plausible, but likely. It has a very real feel which makes the well-developed mystery and action all the more spellbinding. This my second time through the series, and it's no less a nail biter. Can't wait to listen to see where the authors take this!

    "Pulled in by the SyFy show. Staying for the detail"

    A great SciFi book to start a series and pull you into the stories of the characters. Definitely worth a listen! I can't wait for the next one!
